The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy and now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This week is a cover that is from the Tudor period: ‘I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king.’

This week I have gone with Fools and Mortals by Bernard Cornwell.

Cover A:

Cover B:

tudor2

Cover C:

tudor3

Cover D:

tudor4

Cover E:

tudor5

And the winner is… COVER D!

The colouring of the cover is rich and warm, the feather quill very symbolic of the time. I was immediately drawn to this cover as soon as I found it.

What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!

Next weeks’ theme is a cover featuring an amulet either on the cover or in the title.
